Open Seat for Friday Night 9/14

7 posts in this topic

I'll be hitting Mille to do some night trolling tomorrow night. I have the boat and all the trolling equipment. I also have an open seat in my boat if anyone is interested in joining me and sharing gas expense from Elk River? I plan to leave ER around 4:00 pm.

Shoot me an e-mail if you're interested: trtigges@charter.net

I'd love to hop in but I'm guiding down here all weekend, starting with some pre-fishing this afternoon and evening. Have fun!

I'd love for you to join me also Team Otter, I know we've crossed wakes out there a few times! The seat is filled for tonight, but we will have to hook up another time over the next 2+ months.

I have to say, it will definately feel good, to have the tiller in one hand and the trolling rod in the other. We're planning to go out of the windy side tonight--if the wind lets us.

Enjoy your guide trips, I know you work hard putting your clients on fish!

I hope you did well. The bite down here was tough yesterday. Hopefully today they change their mind.

Still a few openings in October. smirk.gif

Sorry I didn't see your post earlier or I would have jumped at it. If you do it again on a Friday night, let me know.

Sandmannd, between now and ice up, I’ll be going up almost every Friday and Saturday night, send a note to my email address above.

Not much to report from our Friday night trip to Mille Lacs. We cut our trip short and only trolled for approximately ½ hour before sunset and ½ hour after sunset. The wind was definitely doing its job, it was blowing from the NW into the east side rocks. I chose the east side specifically for this reason, as I've had my best early fall trolling bite on the east side rocks when the wind is blowing from across the lake. This usually pushes the bait fish up onto the rocks, as was the case Friday night, the seagulls were picking off small bait fish approximately 2" from the top of the reef.

Water temp Friday night was 62 degrees when we came off the lake at 8:30. As the temps were dropping fast, I expect it went down to 60 or below by Saturday morning.

Brian thanks for joining me Friday night, I truly enjoyed your company and conversation!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
